Amazing Stuxnet story

With apologies for quoting a Foxnews story, and with thanks to Scott Adams for the link, here's a fascinating behind the scenes story of Stuxnet:
"The mission: Infiltrate the highly advanced, securely guarded enemy headquarters where scientists in the clutches of an evil master are secretly building a weapon that can destroy the world. Then render that weapon harmless and escape undetected." (from Mystery Surrounds Cyber Missile That Crippled Iran's Nuclear Weapons Ambitions)

and how well did it work?
"“We brought it into our lab to study it and even with precautions it spread everywhere at incredible speed,” Byres said." (from Mystery Surrounds Cyber Missile That Crippled Iran's Nuclear Weapons Ambitions)
